I'm trying to find an African American filmmaker that made movies for African Americans in the early 1930s and maybe even the late 1920s.

TCM dedicated a whole day to him and I found that movies fascinating

Thank You!

Hi Cos,

You're probably referring to Oscar Micheaux. Check out TCM's bio page here

Of course there's quite a bit here in the Archive
